's with group one trading. thank you tom. google is taking aim at microsoft after announcing plans to roll out its own p-c operating system, google chrome os, which should arrive to market in the second half of next year. though google did say chrome will work with full- powered desktop computers, the operating system will target the growing market for netbooks, or smaller computer designed primarily for web use. "microsoft has a problem with netbooks. their current operating system, microsoft vista, does not run on netbooks. their older software, microsoft xp does. so if nothing else, this is a way for google to annoy microsoft." with pricetags as low as $300 netbook sales have exploded in the past 3 years. according to market research firm idc, less than 200-thousand netbooks were sold in 2007, compared with more than 11 million in 2008 and a projected 21 million this year. whether or not that trend continues could be the key to google's foray into microsoft territory.

search engine audience and has a potentially potent weapon in its fight against google. jon najarian, what are we seeing in the reaction of the stocks. yahoo investors are seeming to think they didn't get enough out of deal. >> yeah, they wanted a lot more. and isn't that always the case, investors want more than they've got. i think in this case they were looking for something that just wasn't there, michelle. i mean, yahoo outsearched to  goolgsz, which was their search engine years ago. they have tried to do it on their own, and as carol bartz has said, this company is not about search anymore. they're going to get paid handsomely, i believe. i don't think this is a bad deal for them. because i think they are more of a media company than a search  company. and i would say that it is likely to trade a little lower  still. as analysts downgrade the stock and that will present a buying  opportunity. and microsoft just did a fabulous job here, but don't dismiss eric schmidt over at google. he will keep the pressure on them with the justice  department, and he's got the cashe w
for google or yahoo! to of content is the they do not pay for content. they have links to another news organization that is paying a reporter and a photographer and an editor to sit through the trial or go through the court records are to cover the movie review or whatever, and then the link to a website is free. so there's a disconnect in terms of the people being paid to generate the content like some of us around the table, on the one hand, and on the other hand, the web sites better linking to us and there is not a financial relationship there. >> i would like to get to the politics of this. here at "white house chronicle," when i mentioned politics, it would seem seemly that we're going to suffer. we do not have congressmen getting the scrutiny they used to. we do not have the local courts in getting the scrutiny they used to. and the state capitals, where there are often shenanigans, are not getting the press scrutiny. in maybe pompous about these, but these freedoms are disappearing, and that is not good. i was in the courts in virginia last year as a witness, and i walked from

of a "wall street journal" recently referred to google and yahoo! of the world as a tapeworm. >> guest: absolutely. i agree. google news especially has a wonderful way to get affirmation on any subject you type in the topic and up comes 200 are 300 articles. those were the most part were published in newspapers. the person who goes to those articles is a customer of google effectively they're not a customer of the newspaper that paid those salaries but i think until reporters and journalists and news organizations find out ways to make good will pay to take their work and selling ads against it. google is making a lot of money and makes most of the money from advertising off of the lab a. next to them is yahoo!. bit of hire reporters are paid journalist and they have no hand in creating bad news. they feed off of it like a tapeworm of feeding off of somebody's of the gut as if they are long for the ride. that is a bad model for the future because it look killed the goose that laid the golden egg until those news organizations stop creating the news, a boogaloo is will not nablus to agg

between microsoft and google is getting nasty. google is upping the ante announcing this morning that it's developing a pc operating system based on its chrome browser. the new operating system named google chrome os will be an open source operating system initially geared toward netbooks that will be in the second half of next year. but it could be an uphill battle for google. microsoft already has the dominant windows operating system which controls more than 90% of the world's computers. >>> there's one benefit to the recession. you aren't wasting as much time in traffic. a texas transportation institute study says for the first time in its 25-year history rush hour traffic has declined two years running. los angeles traffic is getting better but it's still tough, the list of traffic jams. washington's task, however, is getting worse and the nation's capital now ranks second. the average u.s. driver spends more than 36 hours in traffic. michelle. >> wow, 36 hours. i hope you don't have to spend that long, claire. >> reporter: no. not me. >> good. all right. claire leka here in new yor
the 800-pound gorilla of the internet. >> reporter: make no mistake, this deal is driven by google, which burst onto the scene ten years ago to knock yahoo! for a loop and become a thorn in microsoft's side. according to internet research firm comshare, yahoo! had nearly 20% of the primary search market last month, microsoft just over 8%. the two combined total less than half of google's 65% share. while microsoft and yahoo companies argue their partnership will be good for consumers and advertisers, in separate video statements handed out to reporters, the c.e.o.'s made their motives clear. >> right now, there's one company that really dominates the world wide market for search and online advertising. the partnership we are announcing today will help to create a stronger number two and increase competition in the search area. >> yahoo! and microsoft the scale necessary to compete against google, which dominates more than 70% of all search. >> reporter: yahoo and microsoft have been dancing around the idea of combining forces for nearly three years. that dance included a hostile takeover
